For almost two decades, I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Eva Sevick and Dr. John Rasmussen who developed real-time lymphatic imaging with indocyanine green. We’ve just published a review paper summarizing what we’ve learned about the function (and dysfunction) of the lymphatics in various diseases. It is published open source in Frontiers of Physiology: Imaging peripheral lymphatic dysfunction in chronic conditions.

The paper discusses lymphedema related to breast cancer, head and neck cancer, autoimmune disorders and venous disease. In future posts, I will discuss the findings in detail but meanwhile, check out the paper and the amazing lymphatic images.
